There is no doubt that the hospitality industry has been hit hard during this pandemic and our restaurants and their staff have had to make many changes in the way they do business. This often means more work for the frontline staff, with extra cleaning and protocols in place, to help ensure customer and staff safety.
Taste of Burlington has received comments from several diners on the great service and protocols in place by our restaurants and how they felt safe while dining out or picking up their food. So they felt it was important that the servers, frontline staff and restaurants heard that feedback and were recognized for their efforts during these challenging times.
That’s why Taste of Burlington is launching the Wicked Awesome Server Recognition Program, in partnership with their friends at Nickel Brook Brewing Co and with sponsorship from PV&V Insurance.
They are asking the public and restaurant staff to nominate a server they feel is deserving of recognition for going above and beyond to ensure customer safety while dining. Each week Taste of Burlington will choose a winner from these nominations and they will be presented with a prize pack. Nominations can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and should include the name of the server, the restaurant where they work and a brief explanation as to why they are deserving.
Taste of Burlington will post a list of servers who have been recognized on the Taste of Burlington website. Each server will receive a Wicked Awesome prize pack from Nickel Brook Brewing Co, a gift card for Mapleview Centre thanks to PV&V Insurance and a $25 gift card to the Downtown Burlington business of their choice thanks to that Burlington Downtown Business Association.
Kelly Harris, Marketing Specialist at Tourism Burlington and Coordinator of the Taste of Burlington program shares her excitement about this new initiative: “We are pleased to launch this new reward program and thankful for the partnership with Nickel Brook and PV&V Insurance. It’s been an extremely hard time for the hospitality industry and we are hopeful that this brings some positivity and smiles to an industry that needs it right now”.
Information and a list of servers who have been awarded will be posted at https://tasteofburlington.ca/nominate-a-wicked-awesome-server-today/
